    Nurses and care givers and police use it on their upper lip to keep foul smells (fecal, gangrene, rotting flesh) away from their noses. Truly works.

    My mom used to put it in hot water and we would then breath in the Vapor’s when we had head colds…….helps to put a towel on the head and make a tent over the vapours.

    it really works…….I use it to this day. :-)
